The tournament, which will be held from September 1-4 in Toronto, Canada, will feature 16 teams from around the world fighting for a piece of the $100,000 total prize pool.

We apologize to both the organizers of Northern Arena, as well as to the fans of coL.cs. The competitive integrity of tournaments is paramount to our industry, and we will be enacting measures to insure that our actions do not lower the standards of a competition in the future.
